Charleston, SC (PRWEB) July 8, 2009
Readers of the Post and Courier Newspaper can now simplify their classified ad buying by texting to get more information about any particular ad.
To provide readers with the most flexibility and access to information, The Post and Courier's classified department decided to add a mobile phone component to their ad listings. In the past, information for a particular ad was limited to the amount of space you purchased in the paper. Now, with the use of a new text message service, each classified ad receives a mobile keyword that readers can text to a specific number to receive more information about any product. For instance, if a reader saw a mobile ID for a used car, he would text that keyword to the newspaper's number. A few seconds later, a text message would be sent to his phone with pictures of the car and car details.
The service is powered by Jinglefeed, a mobile software platform that interacts with the newspaper's classified database. "Mobile classifieds help both the reader and the seller. It makes it easier to obtain more information about a product without having to call and give the seller a more interactive reach so that his message can get out there", says Carlo Favis, owner and founder of Jinglefeed. "Since computer access is not always available, and sometimes you just have a quick question for a seller, text makes it really convenient to initiate a sale."
The Post and Courier's mobile classifieds service is now available for all classified advertisers. To advertise with mobile classifieds contact the Post and the Courier's classified department at 843-722-6500. For readers, mobile classifieds are provided at no charge. Standard text messaging/mobile phone service charges apply. Readers are advised to check with their mobile phone carrier for details on their particular service plan. The Post and Courier uses mobile phone numbers only for purposes authorized by the participants.
